“Life & Health Companies and Property and Casualty Companies writing health insurance should be aware that the notice regarding guaranty association limits will be subject to regulatory change after the effective date of August 28,2013.” – Senate Bill 59
The Missouri Insurance Guaranty Associations provide protection, within limits, to insured’s, beneficiaries, and claimants who are disadvantaged due to the insolvency of a member insurance company. Not all companies are member companies and not all types of insurance policies and coverage are subject to the protection provided by the Missouri Insurance Guaranty Associations.
There are two insurance guaranty associations in Missouri. They are jointly administered from one office. However, they have separate and distinct responsibilities under their respective statutes. One association is responsible for insurance company insolvencies among the member life and health insurance companies, and the other association is responsible for insolvencies occurring among the member property and casualtyinsurance companies.
